When it comes to your make up routine, dark and rich colour palettes have classically married well with the colder months. Why not take your beauty to the next level this season with a dark twist- here’s how to draw on gothic elements for the autumn.
If you’re weary of kohl and want to keep things colourful, a plum lip is perfect. Compliment with bronzer on the cheeks and a slight smoky eye for an autumnal feel.
BLACK AND PINK
Applying cat eye flicks and heavy brows can harden the face, so soften those gothic vibes with a touch of pink. Dust blush shades on the eye lids and underneath the eye, and finish with a neutral lip to lighten the look.
STATEMENT BLACK LIPS
High impact day or night, a slick of noire lipstick is a sure fire way to make a beauty statement. Adapt it for the new season with messy autumnal braids and finish with false lashes to add volume to the eyes.
A TOUCH OF SHIMMER
Who said gothic looks had to be purely dark? Add a touch of seasonal sparkle with a shimmering eye palette to contrast your dark lips.
SUBTLE SMOKY EYES
The smoky eye is a given season after season, and a great accompaniment to your black lip. Stay away from sparkle in favour of matte eyes, and finish with bronzer to nod to the tawny colour palette.
Add a new season twist to the gothic look with a softer, faun palette. Keeping the eyebrows dark, opt for cappuccino and camel colours for the eyes and the lips.
Black lips and heavy kohl not your thing? Nod to the trend with power brows. Draw them extra dark and thick for a statement feel that keeps it looking natural.
